Business Catalyst EOL
Adobe Business Catalyst Announce end of life
In March 2018 Adobe Business Catalyst announced End of Life (EOL) of its website hosting platform. The time has come to develop a migration plan to smooth the process of transitioning away from Business Catalyst to a more capable platform. Since the announcement we’ve been refining our migration process with many clients preferring Wordpress as their new platform of choice. Wordpress is the most widely used CMS in the world and offers excellent integration with the most popular digital marketing tools.
WHY IS ADOBE DISCOUNTINUING BUSINESS CATALYST?
Adobe is committed to delivering exceptional software and services to our customers. It’s in our nature to innovate and try new things, and it was in this spirit that we acquired Business Catalyst in 2009. As we re-focus on products that broadly provide our customers with the most value, we are now announcing the end of life for Business Catalyst. We thank our Business Catalyst users and want to help them make a smooth transition to a third party service.
WILL DATA BE AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD BEYOND THE SERVICE END DATE
No. Data will be deleted. We encourage users to download their data before the service end date.
All clients on Business Catalyst websites will now need to move their sites to another platform. For some clients with older websites this may be a welcomed shift and a chance to incorporate new branding and a fresh new look to their online presence. We will help you transition over to wordpress. In some cases this will be an easy transition and for others with more indepth website features it maybe extensive and complex to migrate over.
